into account in judging between incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elective to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security and economic climate after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the gamble should not be taken. simply that history interplay in with politics might give us pause. what does history predict about a second term for barack obama? were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office? what are the challenges that face those who had troubled or failed second terms? what allowed others to succeed? can barack obama overcome these challengess if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents that waded through the quagmire of a second term and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in a second term does not imply there were not failures or significant stumbles. some even sever
holiday went well. president obama and hillary clinton could not have expected their week to unfold as it did. the president was hoping to focus new attention on the promise of u.s. relations with the far east. secretary clinton was with him on what she thought would be her last overseas mission. instead, mr. obama found himself on the phone with middle east leaders as israel and hamas in gaza rained down rockets on each other. and secretary clinton headed for the region hoping to use a cease-fire to search for longer term answers. >> now we have to focus on reaching a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security, dignity, and legitimate aspirations of palestinians and israelis alike. pete: but she also made it clear the u.s. is firmly supporting its ally israel. peter baker was traveling with the president. peter, with all the changes in the region, how has the u.s. role changed in this process? >> well, of course, you saw president obama taking a very hands on role in this. something that he's been reluctant to do at times in the past. he had a bad ex
makes barack obama happy, newt gingrich's baggage? he has more baggage than the airlines. freddie mac helped cause the xlik collapse. gingrich paid in. they paid him $36,000 an hour, $1.6 million. he teamed up with nancy pelosi on global warning and together they co-sponsored a bill supporting china's brutal one-child policy. >> there has been a lot of discussion in my head about whether ads work in general elections. no ad is going to change their mind. >> in primaries, they are deadly, particularly in republican primaries. that ad in particular for newt gingrich was devastating. >> didn't you see the loving looks. >> real quick on that. i would have pivot off of that caption of him and nancy together. that's what the people are looking for, that partnership, working, getting things done. they were talking about global warning. >> the other thing about that ad, it was symbolic of the entire mitt romney campaign strategy in the primaries, which was a sort of take no prisoners, attack the other guy strategy. it wasn't about philosophy. he did nothing to show that mitt romney was a comm
holiday, president obama pardoned a turkey. >> you know, they say that life is all about second chances. this november, i could not agree more. so in the spirit of the season, i have one more gift to give. it goes to a pair of turkeys named cobbler and gobler. the american people have spoken. these birds are moving forward. >> the whole affair inspired my letter this week to one lucky bird. dear cobbler, it's me, melissa, congrats on being the first nonhuman to receive a letter from nerdland. more importantly, congratulations on spending the rest of your days roaming the historic estate of mt. vernon. it is a good deal. even though you didn't really need a pardon as peta pointed out to the president, it is no the as if you are guilty to anything. there are some that need second chances. your pardon and chief has been reluctant to use his pardoning power for humans. you may not know the details of american jurisprudence. presidents have the power to commute sentences and pardon crimes. pardon wipes out the conviction, commune tation sets aside the punishment. both offer a second chance,
with the media and mitt romney 47 beset and barack obama. what was the media coverage like? >> this morning i just ran 47%. how much media outlets and what is the shelf life? it was relatively short. romney 47% but it has been about one month. but they are dragged back and by the opponent or by the events. i'm sure as we cannot of the debates somebody blows say i wonder if he will respond? the issue is which of these gaffe we need to pay attention? is that the true character flaw? we all make mistakes. but now with the internet and youtube now is distributed broadly and more quickly end to find out what barack obama said 1998. or what mitt romney said there was knocked one bit of coverage of the 47% in may. nobody told the story to the media. not until the video popped up. >> >> host: what politicians have they made in the past fettered fatal? >> we risk harry standing at for the republican nominee that will cut it to the use ways then he cannot remember. you say he is not ready for prime time. he has affected us here was elizabeth dole that came here to speak. so in the speech was aimed at t
taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona republican elected official who has recently been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary of state, the state's current top elections official, i think nobody had very high expectations for him in terms of how well he would do running elections in the state of arizona. and indeed, the arizona elections this year went horribly. and it took them 14 days to even come up with the results. but they do have results. and surprise, i'm thankful to report that that same arizona republican secretary of state, who was a birther and who threate

congressional leaders and president obama. this is an hour and 20 minutes. >> we are delighted to have grover norquist with us. of course, he is president of americans for tax reform but in the spirit of full disclosure, he is also a member of our board of directors and a very important colleague. grover spoke here several months ago, i should say here at the center, but not in this room because we moved -- there may be some glitches, so i apologize in advance. i am sure we will do better next time. however, grover talked about taxes, u.s. economic policy. but that was about taxes and the electoral campaign. now we had elections and the taxes are at the center of a very important political debate and at the center of negotiations between the obama administration and congress, particularly the republican controlled house. as i watched the president during his recent press conference and listened to leaders of the house, i think everybody agrees it would be highly desirable to reach a compromise. they also agree the elections provided a mandate. the president seems to think that he is the one w
to the news. american voters have chosen barack obama as their leader for another four years. asian heads of state were quick to offer their congratulations, but the u.s. faces hurdles to remain an active player in the fast-growing region. in his first term, obama shifted u.s. foreign policy toward the asia pacific, an area notable for its rapid economic expansion. enthusiasm over obama's reelection rippled through the region. students at an elementary school in the indonesian capital jakarta cheered loudly. obama attended the school when he was in the third grade. japanese prime minister yoshihiko noda contacted the president and pledged his cooperation. u.s. and japan have the opportunity to improve ties, especially since relations between japan and china have soured over the senkaku islands conflict in the east china sea. south korean president lee myung-bak said he's sure the u.s. and south korea will continue to develop their alliance. australia is another key ally in the region. prime minister julia gillard pledged cooperations during president obama's second term. >> i'd like to we

is that they are doing precisely what the people who elected them with some do which was several back all obama initiatives, to cut spending, a lot of them doubt that the debt ceiling should not be increased under any circumstances, and to that degree they feel like that was a failure. but, no, they basically believe that their job is first to obstruct barack obama and then once there is a republican president in place to pass those initiatives that create a better business climate, more and more deregulation, the funding of programs that have never quite been near and dear to them. yes. i think that they do believe. and, of course, after you flash toward a bit, i expect to will talks about the debt ceiling fiasco of 2011, but after that summer when we were taken to the brink of fiscal clef, we are about to see again, the thinking on the part of the house republican leaders was, well, you know, maybe your tea party freshmen will go home, he yelled at by their constituents and realized in the you know, maybe compromise is not such a bad thing. the opposite occurred. they went home and the people
president obama or whether whether he felt emboldened in the wake of the cease-fire to believe the u.s. would not criticize him or do anything major to stop this power grab, i think we'll have to find out in the next few days. the timing is not coincidental. you can bet on that. >> heather: coming up the latest reaction from the white house to the turmoil in egypt. we will have a live report from washington. >> gregg: new signs of tough challenges ahead for gaza. number two leader of hamas now saying the group will not stop arming itself. a commented suggesting that indirect negotiations on the border deal could be very difficult. in the meantime, life at the gaza strip returning to normal after the week long strikes. tens of those of children heading back to school. cease-fire appears to be holding. conner powell with more on that. >> reporter: this is still fragile cease-fire. it is important to point out that the cease-fire is holding but still massive challenges has to be dealt with. israel and hamas will send representatives to cairo to continue negotiations through the mediator
. the focus of that campaign and the republicans generally was to vote against barack obama and dependent on the turnout against president obama and you need the policies and a lot of talk about the hispanic issue and you can't give away that many hispanic votes and you know you can get them and even mccain did better, but, unless the republican party's willing to accept some reform of immigration laws, i think they're bound not-- >> and let's listen to mark levin who has this to say and i'll get kimberly and brian in here. >> we conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny, period. we will not negotiate the con servitude, we're the alternative, we will resist. we're not going to surrender to this. we will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our own demise, we're he not good losers. you better believe we're sore losers. a good loser is a loser forever. >> so that's one perspective and listen to peggy noonan who has a different thought. >> oh, i'm sorry, i have to read the quote, excuse me. i thought we had-- that's because i love listening to peggy, but
tread words. some tax indreeses. if president obama want to go back to the clinton era. he needs to follow president obama's lead that included deregulation and death to obama care. and they are joining us now to explain. welcome to have you you here today. >> if president need toz encourage free enterprise or get set for a european style malaise. how so. >> we'll have a recession. he wants clinon era tax rates, okay how about repealing obama care hillary care was reject how about cutting 500 billion from federal spend get it down to the levels how about gen rain deregulation and stabilizing the dollar. and it was almost good as gold. we can live approximate with the tax increases that are coming. and republicans should say we are not going to deal. >> woo are talk being repealing obama care. do you believe at that point honestly there is political will do do that? >> i think the republicans how to say in terms of dealing with the president. he won reelection and 230 house members won reelection on the premise of not having tax increases and not bringing in obama care. and people
about the video just like the obama administration did. and finally is it race they's people magazine always picks a white guy for the sexiest man of the year? some say no. i don't like the new studio. >> you don't like the new studio? >> no. i want to go back to the old one. >> i think this will be permanent at least from now on. >> i like everything. everything is backwards and confusing. you should go back to the other one. >> i tell people on twitter don't get upset about the new studio. >> i don't know why you chose to shoot at a different studio. it is "the five" studio. >> i am not familiar. whatever, don't like the studio. >> the studio doesn't like you. let's welcome our guests. she's so hot she is mistaken for a welding iron. i am here with brooke goldstein the children's rights institute and director of the law fare object. good for you. and he is so ripped he once cut himself on his abs. it is chris baron with an amateur november mustache. and in november he is considered a snowball, it is bill schulz. and if hilarity was a speed limit i would violate him on a highway. sit
the united states and the obama administration and obstacles in creating a genuine palestinian peace process. we will take all of that up tonight with admiral james lyons. congressman louie gohmert of texas will also be here fred also, president obama has no plan to announce tax cuts and spending cuts. why they don't add up to anything meaningful. lou: the testimony before congress has been surveyed. congressman mike rogers. everyone else has testified that they didn't. do you agree? >> i do agree. and the deputies committee, i'm sure the white house representatives of national security from the national security agency council had their orders. lou: general david petraeus says for his part, one of the confusing things -- confusion between the testimony he gave to congress three days after september 11 and what he said over the past few days in congress, it represents what happens when you try to avoid tipping off terrorists. do you buy that? >> according to congressman king, it indicates that betray d petraeus deadlock. lou: is appropriate for a military man to take upon himself or herself
know that the obama administration over the course of the term has imposed 400 regulations that impose more than $100 million of costs annually on small businesses. the small business administration has said that there are so many regulatory burdens on small business that it cost them $10,000 per employee. those are the kinds of things that we want to stop right now so we can see moe startup and jobs created. >> is one thing to hope for freezing regulations. but i guess we had hoped for "a-team" canaday. if you don't know these regulations, you could be in big trouble. let's say that you stop adding to the regulations. that alone has prompted the obama administrati say, well, republicans don't want to protect us. how are you going t answer the predictablcriticism that you're not looking outor folks, you are looking out for business interests? >> well, we are. we are saying in health emergency, of course. any sensible policymaker would say you have to be able to address those. but right now, the pendulum has swung so far that it's very difficult to even conceive starting up your busine
government in egypt. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states, and the obama administration. and, new obstacles in creating a genuine israeli-palestinian peace process. we'll take all of that up here tonight, with admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet and also, president obama wants more in the $1.5 trillion in tax hikes, but he has no plan -- or announced cuts in spending, why those tax hikes don't add up to anything meaningful and we'll talk with the ceo of cke restaurants, andy puzder and says, tax rates will stifle economic growth and our favorite doctors are here, to psychoanalyze the scandal that brought down the head of the cia. we are delighted to be joined, now, by the admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet. it is always good to have you with us. thanks for being here. >> nice to be back with you, lou. >> lou: let's turn, to first, the talking points. which, it seems that no one after general petraeus made it clear there had been changes in those talking points, the testimony before congress has bee
. >> yesterday, the former assistant secretary of defense spoke out on what's happening there. >> president obama is really stuck now. that is is, he wants to court morsey but now that morsey is acting extra illegally, he he is almost forcing president obama to have to rebuke him publicly. and the question is whether president obama will do. so. >> >> we probably should have been quicker to reserve the praise. susan rice was the first one who spoke out immediately praising mohammed morsey. to charles krauthammer's point, it's the money that we hold power in all of this over a billion dollars a year goes to egypt. maybe that's something that the united states holds on to. s and congressman that want to defund egypt entirely. that money probably ought to be held back. >> they're the people once again making their demands. can you see from the videos here. >> looks like the arab spring, right? >> remember what happened in to your knowledge and spilled into egypt. this all started here and people got their wish and mubarak was forced to step down. >> that's the dahlia they know. that's what everybod
house. good saturday to you, mike. >> good morning, alex. >> let's talk about obama care. is that off the table from the democrats' perspective? >> absolutely. the thing is is that john boehner and the republicans, the last time we went around these negotiations, remember it was june of 2011, on the debt ceiling negotiations, the president and the speaker played golf, and there were all those grand bargain talks behind closed doors. republicans tried to put it on the table back then, and democrats said, absolutely no way. and i think they're going to get a similar response this time. remember, it was just a few weeks ago when john boehner after the election essentially said, there's nothing we can do about obama care. it's going into effect next year. people are going to have to start enrolling, those exchanges are going to have to get up and running. he saw a revolt among his house republicans and republicans across the united states, just for saying it. now john boehner is doing a little backtracking. he wrote in the cincinnati enquirer, his hometown newspaper, the president's healt
obama is a winner here. netanyahu is a winner here. hillary clinton is a winner here. i think hamas is a winner here because they now have shown that they are legitimate, that they have to be taken seriously politically in order to get any real permanent solution done, which at the end of the day, i think is what everybody is really looking for. >> amy, what do you think? >> well, up until 24 hours ago, i would have said president mohamed morsi. clearly he felt that his position was greatly strengthened by brokering this peace deal between israel and hamas in gaza. but i think he's overplayed his hand. you just showed that video of the protests there in cairo. we'll have to see where this goes. the great fear is that the muslim brotherhood, like other fascist organizations, will be one man, one vote, one time. and we've seen the muslim blo brotherhood move very swift tloi consolidate their power. >> the u.s. stood squarely behind israel throughout this conflict. does that quiet any critics who thought president obama was soft on israeli security? >> i think it absolutely should. wha
only, no, they are cutting back because with what they fear from president obama getting his way in terms of higher taxes. in determines of higher dividend taxes and higher taxes on just about every piece of the economy and i tell you, don't believe me, go out there and talk to them. they started cutting back way before this last week. >> i want to take this point. >> and this is the problem, the fiscal cliff is really bad, but the solution offered by president obama of massive taxes is not that good. >> julian, what do you make of that this this is just a pandora's box, and the beginning. the fiscal cliff, could have a short-term impact, but ultimately the trend of higher taxes that charlie's point, is what businesses are really afraid of? >> i totally disagree with that and i think the surveys of businesses have shown that to be wrong and i talked to-- >> whoa, whoa, what survey. >> can i finish the point, charlie. >> you just said survey. >> we'll come back. >> i think that businesses are concerned mostly about whether consumers are going to spend or the not. that's the concer
president obama's call to create as many summer jobs as we could possibly create for our youth. leader pelosi we thank you for standing with us to assure the commitment of the corporate partners to invest in our youth. earlier this summer i was happy to sit down with the secretary of labor and announce we surpassed our goal and over 5,000 jobs for our kids in san francisco. [applause] that was a result of city agencies working with corporate and private partners and together we got that done, and we all know the quality of work experience for a young person can be a real bridge to a life line so thank you all for your work. and i also am proud of the work that we do in our communities with our community partners such as our mission economic development agency, the school district, the many city agencies that accomplish the promised neighborhood grant that we won from the department of education and we will need leader pelosi's to get awarded the funds to implement that plan too, yes. and we hope to hear good news after your next trip to washington dc along with other good news speak
, to thank him for a cease-fire between hamas and gaza. >> and morsi's actions now putting the obama administration in a tough position, molly. tell us more about that. >> now that morsi fired top prosecutor and put himself above the judiciary system the white house will back off more public support of him and a former ambassador to the u.n. under president george w. bush says that morsi is taking advantage of his part in this cease-fire. >> whether he had a wink and a nod from president obama or whether he simply felt emboldened in the wake of the gaza cease-fire to believe that the u.s. wouldn't really criticize him or do anything major to stop this power grab, i think we'll have to find out here in the next few days, but the timing is not coincidental, you can bet on that. >> the obama administration says that egypt has a constitutional vacuum and needs to figure out governing issues such as checks and balances and rule of low and democratic dialog, arthel. >> arthel: molly henneberg, thank you very much for the report. >> rick: new details on a fire that broke out at the state de

. it is funny you mention barack obama carried the state that you mentioned. i am not sure on the isle of statistics -- it is an important state. she voted twice for president obama. she voted early each time. i do not know where early votes go after that. i could see a little bit of potential for fraud, kind of like the american idol voting. technology might get to the point where we do not need to go anywhere to vote. we will do it on the phone or the computer. that could open the door way to fraud, people voting more than once. somebody early voting and going to the polls. it depends on oversight. host: we are going to leave it there and move on to ron on the line for democrats. caller: good morning. the problem is the republicans. they can only win with a minority. to do this, they have to divide the electorate somehow. they do this through religion, they do this through race, they do this through money, actually. people who have money are able to have more in this country. they can only win through obstruction and limiting the number of people voting. in the future, we have to loo

for the continuing american role in the middle east? >> yeah, well, first i thought president obama deserves a great deal of praise for how he's handled this. he could have really taken it out on-- some people thought he has not been supportive of israel. some people thought since benjamin netanyahu was a little pro-romney it seemed during the campaign there might be some bad blood there. but i think it has to be said over the last uple of weeks, the obama administration has been extremely supportive of israel. that's one thing. and the second thing they've done is work with the new egyptian government and that was not necessarily a done deal, either. so they've given us this cease-fire. and so we had a pretty, you know, serious military exchange. but the american-egyptian relationship was not frayed. the american-israeli relationship was not frayed. and importantly, the israeli-egyptian relationship, while frayed, is still functioning. so i think they've done a reasonably good job of stabilizing things. now, morsi has taken this opportunity to create a bit of a constitutional crisis there, and ther
